American-based Tasmanian triathlete Joe Gambles is celebrating another title.
"It's been a while coming but so happy to get back on the top step," Gambles posted on Facebook after taking out the 70.3 Eagleman in Cambridge, Maryland.
A cancelled swim due to unsafe conditions forced the race to be a 90-kilometre ride and 21km run format with a time-trial start.
The Launceston-born, Colorado-based veteran clocked 3:17.08 to lead home Canadian Cody Beals by +1:21 with third-placed American Adam Feigh a further three minutes behind.
Gambles was particularly pleased to book a spot for the 70.3 world champs in Nice, France, in September.
Richie Porte was among several contenders to lose time on stage two of the Critérium du Dauphiné.
The Launceston 34-year-old lost 31 seconds to rivals including former teammate Chris Froome when he was caught by a split in the stage between Mauriac and Craponne-sur-Arzon.
"I think when the stronger guys went there on that last climb, it was hectic and hard," Porte told cyclingnews. "I think it was a real (general classification) shake-up but I don't think it's over just yet."
Porte is leading his Trek-Segafredo team in the week-long race ahead of contesting his ninth Tour de France.
Twice runner-up in the Dauphiné, Porte finished 18th on the 180km stage and sits 16th overall.
